I firmly believe that without experience with psychedelics you'd never truly "get it".

That is not to say that it is impossible, but all those cosmic tumblers fell into place when you combine them.

The band's own rise is a attributed to the stuff.

I agree. Not needed to like the band, clearly, but necessary if you truly want to understand where the music comes from.

"...but all those cosmic tumblers fell into place when you combine them."

that is true imho. I would be curious to know if I would like the music as much if I had never experienced the "combination." I don't do any substances now (excepting caffeine and nicotine), but located within my consciousness is the memory of the combination when I listen to the music sober.

I wonder this as well. But really what would suck is to find out that you don't. Especially with the high level of appreciation we've achieved. Talk about a bummer!

would be a bummer indeed, but would be damn funny to say to my wife "hey! they actually DO suck!"
